Year 5/6 2020 - 2021

See video below from the Year 5/6 teachers answering some of your questions.


Welcome to the Year 5/6 class page! We're so happy to be back in school and seeing you all being happy to be back. We will update our page regularly with information that you will need so if you're ever unsure, check here.

We look forward to working with you throughout the year to come.


Mr Coaker, Mrs Hayward and Mr McCallum.

Class Saints

All classes in our school have a class saint. Our class saints in Year 5/6 are:


Mr Coaker - St Patrick

Mrs Hayward - St Andrew

Mr Coaker - St Jude



Homework is set on Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. We will let your children know what pages have been set each week for homework and we will also publish the pages on the school bulletin. We use CGP homework books for the majority of the work set but we also use MyMaths, an online programme that you can complete homework on but also practise all aspects of maths. Logins for MyMaths have already been given to your child. Please keep this information safe as you will need it throughout the school year.



Our PE day is Thursday with all three classes participating with either Mr Stevens or Mr Coaker. For this first half-term, Mrs Hayward's and Mr McCallum's classes will be on the field with Mr Stevens learning about football and Mr Coaker's class will be doing netball on the playground.

We are asking that you send your child in on Thursday, already in their PE kit. This is to help us reduce the number of items in school because of Covid-19. However, if your child is doing football please make sure they have a change of shoes and spare socks in case they get wet during the lesson. Your child can obviously change into their boots in school.


Autumn Topics

This term, our focus is World War 2. We will be learning about the war in history and english. In RE, we will be learning about the creation and responsibility we have while on earth. For science, we will be looking at light and its properties. If you would like to at a more in-depth look at what we will be learning about this term in Y5/6, please look at the attached long-term plan. 


Fact Files

We use these fact files in school and will send a copy home to help you and your child understand more about the topics covered during the school year. These contain key dates from the time period studied, vocabulary discovered during learning and some key facts and information about the topic. As well as a History or Geography Fact File we also provide a Science one. Here are the Fact Files for the Autumn Term.
